Add-ons in the Republican tax bill

Add-ons in the Republican tax bill | 02 Dec 2017 | The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in the Senate in the early hours of Saturday now has to be combined with the House version passed in November to make a final law... Drilling the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge: A very non-tax related addition to the Senate bill was squeezed in that would open the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. This is a[n insane] goal of Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who may have promised her vote for the addition of the provision. Private jet tax break: Possibly the most unappetizing aspect of the bill is the tax break for private jet owners. The provision would exempt aircraft owners from taxes on the "maintenance and support of the aircraft owner's aircraft or flights on the aircraft owner's aircraft." Bad news for Gulf Airlines Foreign airlines such as Qatar Airways, Etihad and Emirates will face corporate tax for landing in US airspace [Good!], ending a tax exemption for the airlines.
